Updating your home may seem like a huge undertaking, yet by breaking it down room-by-room, you may find the changes will come by themselves.

A few simple and inexpensive ways to update a home, according to the San Francisco Chronicle, include re-upholstering your old furniture, changing out your dated lighting fixtures, and even modernizing your window treatments. Starting with easy fixes will give you an idea of what you want your overall design to look like.

If you've been a victim to flimsy shades, try implementing roman shades, which come in a number of colors and fabrics and can instantly create richness in your room. Additionally, wood shades will help you evoke a warm and inviting tone.

Capitalize on your budget by using your old furniture and simply choose a new fabric and pattern that will offer your old worn-out classics a breath of fresh air. If you've got a great old vintage armchair, fit it with a chic pattern that will draw attention from your guests. Consider changing the color of rooms that may have unsightly wallpaper, or just use a fresh coat of paint to make a room look more appealing.

Remember, the look of your home should reflect your personality and style - after all, you're the one who will be living in it!
